About the AGBA
The Alberta Goat Breeders Association (AGBA) was registered as a non-profit society on February 14, 1970 by a small group of goat breeders who wished to have an official club to serve their interests. At that time, most members raised dairy goats, but the AGBA has since grown to include members with all types of goats: dairy, meat, pets, and fibre.
There are currently close to 200 members from across Alberta in the AGBA. A board of ten directors implements the objectives of the association, and members take part in an annual general meeting. AGBA activities include seminars, shows, displays, demonstrations, and information services.
AGBA news and other goat related articles and information are available in the bimonthly magazine GoatKeeper, as well as on this site.
The AGBA works closely with Alberta Agriculture and Food and the Diversified Livestock Fund of Alberta to further the goat industry. As well, the AGBA is a voting member of the Canadian National Goat Federation and a supporting member of the Alberta Farm Animal Care.
